Skyrim DLC to Feel Like Expansion Packs
In an interview with Kotaku, Bethesda’s Todd Howard explained that Skyrim’s DLC will be meatier than Fallout 3′s and feel more like expansion packs.
Our plan now is to take more time, to have more meat on them [for Skyrim]. They’ll feel closer to an expansion pack.
Of course, more content per DLC means more development time, and consequently, more time elapsed between content updates. Fortunately, Howard doesn’t intend to leave us high and dry:
Because that gap is going to be bigger, we want to put little things out for free in between. We’ve already done that for PC with the high-res pack. We’re trying to figure out what those things are.
